Babysitters Ratings System Information for Parents

Nannies and babysitters can be rated by parents on The Best Babysitters, sharing valuable information. Here are further details about our ratings system:


The Best Babysitters has designed a ratings system to allow the community of parents to share feedback with each other about babysitters and nannies. We believe in providing a ratings system that will serve all parents, nannies and babysitters on the site. Parents can post a rating (out of 5 stars) and make a short comment about babysitters or nannies they have used. The carers are notified about the rating. They can then post a reply online. Parents are also able to delete a rating if they choose to.

Leaving a rating (parents):

To leave a rating, parents log on to The Best Babysitters site by using their email and password. This will open their dashboard, with a list of sitters and nannies they have messaged. The parent can click on the sitter's name or profile image from their list and this will open the sitter’s profile. At the end of the profile page there is a section for sharing a rating.

Reply to a rating (babysitters):

Babysitters and nannies will be notified that a rating has been given for them. To see the rating, babysitters can login to their account using their email and password. When they open their profile they’ll see a "My Reviews" section at the end of the profile. If they choose to reply they can do so here.

Removing a rating:

A rating can be deleted by the parent who wrote it. To do this, parents login to their account page. At the end of their Dashboard page is a section listing the ratings they’ve written. Next to the rating is a ‘delete’ icon. The entire rating and reply will be deleted.
